About the Department:
The Department conducts research on Polish and European literature of the Romantic period and on contemporary literature entering into a dialogue with the romantic tradition. The themes of recent studies include: the writings of Juliusz Słowacki, the poetics of laughter in Aleksander Fredro’s works, the poetry of Bolesław Leśmian, women heroes in Romantic literature, Romantic melancholy, Romantic notions of space.
The last collective work is Mickiewicz: Encyklopedia [Mickiewicz: An Encyclopedia] (with more than 400 entries), which was published in Autumn 2001. This work is the first attempt on such a scale to systematize, in an encyclopedic manner, all of the information about the life and work of Adam Mickiewicz. Another collective work is an edition of Mickiewicz’s correspondence. It is being prepared jointly with Mickiewicz scholars from other departments.
